Brief History

The town of Addison was given permission to incorporate by the General Court of Massachusetts on February 14, 1797. The settlers chose the name in honor of the British writer Joseph Addison. Shipbuilding and quarrying were the major industries. There were 83 vessels built between 1800 and 1900 and four major granite quarries in operation.
